Feb 4, 2016 Updated Feb 12, 2016

US guitarist John Scofield has dropped yet another great album, with some old friends joining the ensemble.

Past Present is the latest offering from US guitarist John Scofield, who's teamed up with a quartet featuring Joe Lovano (sax), Bill Stewart (drums) and Larry Grenadier (bass). Lovano and Stewart first appeared alongside Scofield during the early 90s for a number of recording dates, and Past Present is a welcome return. It contains a plethora of new compositions by Scofield, some of which are dedicated to his late son Evan, who passed away from cancer in 2013.
